1. “Web of Hope” interactive art installation. Children and adults were encouraged to weave yarn, string, fabric and what have you into the structure. You could also write messages on pieces of tin and attach them. More of this later.

2. Storm hooked up with a little girl that played the banjo. Storm did rhythm via a homemade rattle, and another little girl danced. They made spending money this way.

3. “The Band”

4. Lorelei, of course.

5. More of the “web of hope”

6.

7. It had passageways in it.

Big ol’ backlog of photos

Filed under: Uncategorized — vaughnsphotoart @ 7:23 pm

I have gotten really bad about naming, organizing, and backing up my photos. Bad, bad, bad. So today I rolled up my sleeves and dived in, gave directories meaningful names (all the way back to April), finished exporting a bunch of stuff, and got everything proper and ready for backups. Syncback is running now.

In addition to all the photos I had been neglecting, I also found some I had actually misplaced. So, lots of photos upcoming. I’ll start with a couple shots of carnivorous plants I took at the blue plum festival.

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

“Who Watches the Watchmen?”

Woo, I’m excited! The trailer for Watchmen is out!

Trailer link here

If you’re not familiar with Watchmen, it’s a graphic novel (aka: really thick comic book) first produced as a 12-part series by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons of DC Comics in 1986-87. According to Wikipedia, it stands unique as the only graphic novel to win a Hugo Award, and was the only graphic novel to appear on Time Magazine’s 2005 list of “the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to the present.” I had to check the Hugo bit, because I thought Maus also had a Hugo, but it turns out Maus has a Pulitzer.

I think what makes the story so engrossing is that most of the “superheroes” don’t actually have superpowers. They are more like a collection of Batmans (Batmen?)… normal people with some advantage on their side, be it wealth, military training, psychosis, or whatever. And a costume, of course. As people, they all struggle with human failings, doubts, temptations, and mistakes, which feed into the plot. The plot, best described as a “conspiracy-theory-driven mystery of global proportions”, helps pull you in too.

I’ve been following the project for a while, it’s been long in the making. I appreciate that the director Zack Snyder (of 300 fame) is doing an interpretation that is faithful to both the storyline and style of the graphic novel. There are many “the making of” video snippets available out there, if you are interested.

This film is slated for 2009 release, I hope I don’t get burnt out on anticipation by then.

Time to go reread Watchmen. :)
